DENVER — Hundreds of Crestmoor Park residents at Monday night’s Denver’s City Council re-zoning meeting aren’t giving up even after the  council voted in favor of the project 8-4.

Opponents of the project outnumbered supporters.

Many coming in by the van load to sign up to protest the idea. Hundreds were expected to speak Monday night pushing the meeting until 2 a.m.

The developer needed the zoning change for the old church property to build 25 townhomes on the south side of the old church property and a 50-unit apartment building on the north part.

The three-story apartment would sit near the intersection of Monaco Parkway and Alameda.

But neighbors say that’s way too much for the two-acre site.

Neighbors want to work with the developer, but said Metropolitan Homes didn’t seem open to eliminate the apartment complex for single family homes or townhomes.
